Course Synopsis
This intensive, four day course is designed to improve your chances of passing the Certified Business Analysis Professional™ (CBAP®) cer­tification exam on the first try. The demand for professionals with the CBAP® certification is growing within industries across the globe as organisations struggle to create disciplined approaches for eliciting and managing require­ments. To earn the CBAP® credential offered by the International Institute of Business Analysis (IIBA®), you must demonstrate the required business analysis experience and pass a 3.5-hour, 150-ques­tion exam, covering all knowledge areas of IIBA’s A Guide to the Business Analysis Body of Knowledge® (BABOK® Guide).

You will find out exactly what you need to know and how to prepare yourself to fulfil the require­ments for each BABOK® Guide knowledge area, including the business analysis techniques identi­fied in each area. You will become familiar with the makeup and format of the exam itself by answer­ing practice questions within each lesson. You will get a chance to explore the rationale behind each answer with your instructor, a certified CBAP®. In addition, after you have completed the lessons, you will have the opportunity to take “real-life” practice exams to put your skills to the test.

As part of the course, you will be provided with a copy of Strategy Execution’s BA Techniques Handbook, which is a stand-alone guide that describes in detail each of the business analysis techniques covered by the BABOK® Guide. The BA Techniques Handbook explains the purpose of each technique, how the technique can be used, and where it is referenced in the BABOK® Guide. The Handbook will not only help you study for the exam, but can also be used to help you identify and select the appropriate techniques when conducting a business analysis effort. In the course, you will also have access to numerous other study aids and memorisation drills that will further enhance your familiarity with the BABOK® Guide.
